I siphoned off the cider today into a' bag in box'. It had been in the FV for 10 day's and for the last two day's was reading at FG: 1006 with an ABV 5.78%.
I have not primed and will now let it sit for 1 month and update from there.
I did sample it. It is to my taste. I can see why...
Thanks for the reply. I have made this before but it was years ago and have forgotten what is tastes like.
I like flat, strong cider and i am fermenting 18L to hopefully get 7% ABV. Just don't know if priming is
necessary if i don't want it sparkling. I will keep you noted as i carry on...
I'm currently fermenting this cider. My query is, when i come to siphon off,
i want it to be flat when i drink it, similar to scrumpy. Do i go about this by not priming?
or do i need to prime for other reasons than carbonation?
i just bottled wilko rose wine in 750ml glass bottles and sealed with plastic corked stoppers.
my question is: how long will the wine keep with these sort of stoppers?
i'm hoping to store the wine for 8 months atleast. :-?
thanks in advance :thumb:
